Intake Substation Development Plan

The Intake Substation in North Melbourne is an essential piece of infrastructure that will power the Metro Tunnel’s twin nine-kilometre rail tunnels and the new Arden Station.

Draft plan

The Development Plan includes site layout plans, and architectural, landscape and public realm plans for the built form of the Intake Substation.

This plan demonstrates how the works will be delivered in accordance with the approved Environmental Performance Requirements as defined in the Metro Tunnel Environmental Management Framework and the approved Urban Design Strategy for the project.

Next steps

From 18 November to 6 December 2019 the draft plan was on display for public comment. Feedback will now be considered and the updated plan will be submitted to the Minister for Planning for approval accompanied by any written comments received, a summary of the consultation and responses to issues raised during the consultation process.

The Minister for Planning must approve the Development Plan prior to the commencement of works covered in the Plan.
